Using injury solicitors in Burnham-On-Sea to make a claim for a brain injury accident
You will soon realise the benefits of using a national legal team rather than choosing to use injury solicitors in Burnham-On-Sea, and Accident Advice Helpline is a popular choice for many UK residents seeking brain injury compensation.
Brain injuries can occur as a result of an assortment of accidents, including:
- Road traffic accidents
- Trips, slips or falls at work or in public places
- Falling objects at work or in public places
Brain injuries can be extremely life-altering and, unfortunately, if proper safety precautions are not carried out at work, or in places open to the public, then these types of accidents can occur all too easily.
Road traffic accidents
Roads are extremely dangerous places and are made even more so when people do not abide by the rules and regulations put in place to minimise accidents on the road. Drivers, and even pedestrians, can suffer terribly if a driver goes through a red light, drives too fast or is guilty of reckless driving. If you are involved in a crash or hit by a car, as a driver or a pedestrian, and you suffer a brain injury as a result, it is your right to pursue compensation.
Trips, slips and falls
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that the workplace is a safe place to be. This means making employees aware of any hazards, repairing any uneven flooring, clearing obstructions and spillages as soon as possible and providing any safety clothing, including helmets, should they be required. Failure to protect staff from potential dangers can be viewed as negligent so that if an employee does slip, trip or fall, and suffers any injuries, including brain injuries, the employer or business owner can be made to pay compensation.
Shops should also be made safe areas where shoppers can browse and purchase goods without the risk of suffering injuries. Badly stacked shelves, or damaged ceilings and light fixtures are all hazards which could fall onto customers, causing significant brain injuries. All businesses of this type should have liability insurance which can be used to compensate any injured parties in cases such as these. Employers are also responsible if staff are injured due to falling objects, and these types of accidents are likely to happen in shops that have a large number of shelving units, or stacked products, as is found in supermarkets.
